Staff Development Committee

The Division of Student Life Staff Development Committee is responsible for providing opportunities for connection, community, and learning to Division staff members.

Our vision is to provide a well-rounded experience for DSL staff members so that they enjoy their work, appreciate staff development opportunities, connect with colleagues across the Division, and gain skills to further their good work here or elsewhere.

Upcoming Events

Transfer Student Roundtable

2/5/19,  MGC Room, IMU, 11 AM-12 Noon

Roundtable discussions are a loosely structured conversation that provide a chance to share your own experiences, learn from your colleagues, and connect across the division. Based on principles of Open Space Technology, “whoever comes are the right people”, “whatever happens is the only thing that could have happened”. This roundtable discussion is a chance to reflect on the unique experience of transfer students at the University of Iowa.  Bring ideas and challenges related to supporting transfer students on campus. Strategize with colleagues about ways to strengthen and develop initiatives that will help all transfer students to thrive in their new Hawkeye home. This session will also include a Q&A with current transfer students.    No registration required.
